PLP Response to The Royal Gazette Article on Bermuda’s Casino Legislation Journey

The Bermuda Progressive Labour Party finds the peddling of debunked conspiracies about The Party unsurprising but extremely disappointing.


When he served as Leader of the PLP, Mr. Bean saw first hand the damage that innuendo and political smears by the OBA could be. In fact, when his business Paradise Games was being accused of and investigated for criminal activity, we saw the pain that politically motivated witch hunts caused him and his family.

We know that anyone can smoke up a conspiracy theory and there will always be people willing to run with it, regardless of the facts. We also know the damage it can cause to the victims of these campaigns of deceit.

We all know that the conspiracy theory around secret meetings and trips by the PLP, originated within the OBA to attempt and damage the credibility of the late MP Shawn Crockwell, whose revelations about the racism, lack of empathy, and anti-Bermudian mindset were severely damaging their electoral prospects.
We also know that those OBA manufactured conspiracy theories were totally debunked years ago.

As a Party, The Bermuda Progressive Labour Party condemns corruption wherever it occurs and whoever performs it, regardless of what political Party they represent. Since the FDM’s Leader left the PLP, we’ve implemented more stringent internal governance measures,
including enhanced conflict of interest policies and stricter ethical guidelines for all members.
Public trust is paramount, and we are committed to maintaining it through open dialogue and action.

We further condemn the promotion of fabricated conspiracy theories and encourage the elevation of provable facts over notions created for political gain. The journey towards better governance is ongoing. We continue to make steady progress in keeping all aspects
of gaming independent and transparent.
Progressive Labour Party (PLP) Serving Bermuda with Integrity and Commitment.
